BRAHMS: Variations on a Theme of Haydn
HAYDN: Symphony No. 44, Trauersinfonie
BRAHMS: Piano Concerto No. 1
What’s interesting about this concert:
• A program of identities both mistaken and true. Brahms’ reworking of a theme (perhaps not) by Haydn and the full embrace of his own style in the First Piano Concerto.
• The Chicago Sun Times describes pianist Yefim Bronfman as “a bear of a man.” When “heft is called for…he is there to deliver it.”
• Like a symphony, Brahms’ concerto explores the capabilities of the entire orchestra, going far beyond featuring only the soloist.
This concert is part of Series 2.
